Everyone deserves to feel confident, even those who have less than perfect teeth. If you are among those who do not love their smiles, Dr. Wael M. Kassem has the solution you need. With porcelain veneers, you will drastically improve the color, size, shape, and proportion of your teeth in as little as two appointments. The minimally invasive procedure gives you natural-looking results to smile brightly.
What are Porcelain Veneers?
Porcelain veneers are thin shells bonded to the front surfaces of your teeth. They instantly cover a variety of cosmetic concerns to give you a radiant smile. Porcelain has become the preferred material for veneers because it closely mimics your enamel. It also makes them thinner, so less of your enamel is removed during the bonding process.
What Can Veneers Correct?
Veneers are quite versatile. They can be used to correct several imperfections, like dark tooth discoloration that does not respond to traditional whitening treatments. It is the perfect option to repair cracked or chipped teeth. They can also improve those that have an abnormal shape or are shorter than average.
In some cases, veneers can even make your teeth appear straighter by closing gaps and covering minor misalignment. You can get the straight smile you have always wanted without having to spend months wearing braces.
Who is a Candidate?
Dr. Kassem will conduct a thorough examination to ensure veneers are right for you. In most cases, if your teeth and gums are healthy, you are a candidate for the procedure. During the first phase of your treatment, your teeth are cleaned, and a small amount of enamel is removed. Impressions are taken of your mouth to craft your veneers to meet your exact specifications. In about two weeks, they will be ready to be bonded in place.
How Long Do Veneers Last?
Veneers provide a long-term solution of about 10 years before needing to be replaced; however, it is not uncommon for them to last longer if you care for them properly.
How Do I Care for Veneers?
Although veneers cannot develop tooth decay, your underlying teeth are still susceptible to cavities. It is best to brush your teeth twice a day for at least two minutes each session. Choose a soft-bristled toothbrush and a nonabrasive toothpaste to prevent scratches from developing on their surfaces. Do not forget to floss in between each tooth before going to bed at night.
Veneers are durable, but they can chip or crack. To prevent damage, do not bite on overly hard foods, like ice. You will also want to avoid chewing on inedible objects, like your nails, pens, or pencils.
Maintain your semi-annual appointments with Dr. Kassem for a cleaning and checkup. In addition to checking your teeth and gums, he also looks at your veneers to ensure they are undamaged and bonded well. If one breaks or comes loose, it can easily be replaced.
